Questions about eggs from young hens
"I have 13 comets. Love them for the ease of required care to production. I am wondering if these birds would rather lay eggs on the ground then roost in nesting boxes to lay them? I can't seem to get them to roost in the boxes but find the eggs on the floor every a.m. Also, the egg sizes seem small, they are young and just starting to lay. Do these birds need any special feed for larger size egg production?"

Eggs are 74% water, so you may see an increase in thirst from your new pullets. Be sure to provide plenty of clean water!
